Communism by car

Communism guided tour


This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore a seemingly forgotten story that has pushed the boundaries of endurance and has marked several generations of Romanian people. A trip down-on-memory lane, appealing to all of your senses, that will unveil the city and its people with both good and bad sides, while allowing you to judge the progress and the downfall of a society for yourselves. To top everything up, we have included a visit into the largest local market of Bucharest where you will witness the communist bedroom dormitories that defined (and still do) the last 50 years of Romanian social history. After tasting a workers class meal, we will head out to the Bel Air of Bucharest, the nest of the communist leaders, where you might see how the communist leaders really understood the slogan ”we are all equal”.


Explore different parts of the city, from historical areas and sights to the communist neighborhoods and learn the essentials and aftermath of a regime that left a deep scar on our collective memory
Connecting by public transport the areas of Bucharest which are out of the tourist path, we head into the heart of the communist nest, the most glamorous area of Bucharest.

Try a classic traditional communist meal, a true symbol for the local community

We got into neighbourghoods we woudn't have the chance to go by ourseleves and that was a truly impressive experience. Local Hosts drove us around and showed the extremes: from regular communist blocks to posh area where Ceausescu lived. We recommend this unique tour.
